West Bend City Pool
West Bend, IA | Sports + Recreation
ISG worked with the City of West Bend to assess its deteriorating community pool and provide viable solutions for the improvements.
With an aging municipal pool from the 1960s that accounted for thousands of gallons of water loss per day and consistent flooding of a nearby ditch, the City of West Bend needed to assess repair and renovation options.
Building off a previously completed facility report submitted to the City, ISG conducted a site visit to assess water loss issues, ADA concerns, and degradation of treatment equipment and mechanical room. ISG used visit findings and an alternative analysis approach to develop four viable options for the City to choose from moving forward, ranging from inaction, to installation of a synthetic liner, to replacement of decayed piping, to conceptual plans for a new pool and renovated pool house. Designs features of the new pool concept included a rock-climbing wall and other water play areas and ADA chair lift. Concepts for the renovated pool house included updated concession area, mechanical room, entrance plaza, and changing area. To aid the City in gaining consensus in the decision-making process, ISG facilitated several community engagement meetings to present the options to residents.
